Is the Obama administration trying to start a war with Russia before the election in desperate hopes it will somehow scare Americans into voting for Hillary?
Sure seems like it.

What do you mean it is being played at on a political level now? I for one and damn glad that Russia has the power to demand the US answer on this before the UN. Light needs to be cast on this.
But but; Liberty and justice for all and defending our freedoms over there! My ass.
Yep .... People and our government seem to forget Syria is a sovereign country and Russia is defending their right to exist..... While the USA is arming and training those who wish to overthrow the Syrian government just like Libya..
It would take some serious persuasion to convince me we are on the side of right and justice..
As far as mission planning and intell Russia has offered numerous times to share intell on troop positions so that something like this could be avoided.. USA crickets...
Sickening isn't it..... Oh and might as well end with a political statement... If Hillary get the POTUS position expect more of the war mongering, regime change B.S. IMO
. One the US has permission from thr Syrian govt to perform boming in Isis. .

The USA and co have not met the requirements for permission to bomb in Syria
there is no Syrian consent for attacks on its territory
The USA has only offered to Retaliate If Syria Interferes In the Airstrikes.
Obama isn't trying to a regime change in Syria? lol
Obama himself has for years asked President Assad to step down, and he is arming, training, and commanding an army on the ground to overthrow him.
The USA airfoce is bombimg Syrian industry and infrastructure to cripple the country to force him out.
US-led coalition jets have bombed Syrian government forces’ positions near the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor, killing 62 troops and "paving the way" for Islamic State militants, the Syrian Army General Command told the state television.
xty-two Syrian soldiers were killed and over 100 injured in the airstrike by the US-led coalition, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, said, citing information received from the Syrian General Command. The Russian Defense Ministry said that the aircraft which carried out the bombings had entered Syrian airspace from the territory of Iraq. Four strikes against Syrian positions was performed by two F-16 jet fighters and two A-10 support aircraft, it added.
The Defense Ministry also confirmed a report by SANA that an Islamic State offensive began right after Syrian Army positions were hit from the air. "Immediately after the airstrike by coalition planes, Islamic State militants launched their offensive. Fierce fighting with the terrorists is currently underway in the area of the airport where for a long a time humanitarian aid for civilians was parachuted,” Konashenkov said.

I suppose we've been officially informed now that the Islamic State has its own air force (USAF).
Syria's foreign minister said today that his government is satisfied with the US-led bombing campaign against the Islamic State group, adding that the airstrikes should be expanded to include all other militant groups in Syria.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Walid al-Moallem said the fight against terrorism has aligned Damascus with Western and Arab opponents in fighting the same enemy.
Al-Moallem said the US does not inform Syria of every strike before it happens, "but it's OK."
